Lady Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer gets back to work less after being gunned down

After being gunned down by dognappers in the middle of the night, Lady Gaga’s dog walker Ryan Fischer has recovered enough to head back to work.

The 30-year-old looked healthy and strong as he was spotted out and about running some errands before swinging by Lady Gaga’s Los Angeles home on Friday.

Fischer was shot four times on February 24 while out walking Gaga’s three French bulldogs. Two of the dogs were stolen and later recovered and five people have been charged in connection with the incident.

Looking very much on the mend, Ryan picked up flowers and presents in a pair of teal sweatpants, a cropped tank and a vest.  

He’s sporting some summer scruff on his face and donned a baseball hat as he took a quick phone call.

After running his errands and grabbing a cup of coffee, Ryan was spotted heading over to his employer’s home. 

Ryan is reportedly already back to work following the nearly fatal shooting in February which resulted in a weeks long hospital stay.

Sources close to the situation told TMZ that Ryan is walking Gaga’s dogs again but ‘during the day now.’ 

In February, Fischer was walking the Oscar winner’s three French bulldogs Koji, Gustav and Miss Asia when he was shot four times.

Two of the dogs, Koji and Gustav, were taken while Miss Asia managed to escape and went back to lay with Ryan as he bled on the sidewalk.

He recounted the terrifying incident on social media a month later and praised Miss Asia, calling her his ‘guardian angel’ for staying by his side. 

Fischer described how he feared he wouldn’t survive the attack, writing: ‘I cradled Asia as best I could, thanked her for all the incredible adventures we’d been on together, apologized that I couldn’t defend her brothers, and then resolved that I would still try to save them… and myself,’ he wrote at the time.

During that health update, Fischer also revealed that while he was recovering he suffered a lung collapse.

Gaga, who covered all of Fischer’s medical expenses, also offered a $500K reward for the safe return of her two stolen dogs.

The pair were recovered unharmed but police urged the star not to pay the reward money as they had suspicions about the legitimacy of the good Samaritan.  

Last month, five suspects were charged in the dognapping – including the woman who returned Koji and Gustav. 

Three of the suspects — James Jackson, 18; Jaylin White, 19; and Lafayette Whaley, 27 — have been charged with attempted murder and armed robbery, according to the LAPD.

Two additional defendants — Harold White, a known gang member and the 40-year-old father of Jaylin White, and his girlfriend Jennifer McBride, 50 — are accused of acting as accessories after the fact by helping conceal the stolen animals. 

They were not aware that Gaga was the owner, the police said, amid claims robberies were part of a gang initiation.  

Lady Gaga recently returned to Los Angeles after spending some time in Italy filming her upcoming movie, the House Of Gucci biopic. 

She plays Patrizia Reggiani in the film, the estranged wife of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) who hired a hitman to kill him in 1995.
